Very sorry to hear of Earl's passing. My condolences to his family!

It seems like only yesterday that many of us attended the graduation party around the pool of Earl's family in 1961. It was the first time I remember ever having "Baked Alaska", the featured dessert that evening. We all had a grand time. Bill Dent

I would like to sing the phrases of Earl Williamson.   More than 15 years ago, when he came back to sell his family house in Oxon Hill, we were able to spend a little time together.  

As most of you know, Earl died as a result of a long-time injury that happened in South America.  As I remember the story,  Earl was one of a number of passengers an armed robber was holding up.  A fellow passenger was being terrorized, Earl jumped in front of the woman to protect her, he succeeded, but he got shot and critically injured.    
In spite of thereafter living with significant pain,  he had an excellent attitude, sunny philosophy, and true appreciation of life.    I remember being amazed by his still keen love for adventure.   

 Earl and I were friends and neighbors when we were growing up.  I knew and loved his parents and I am so thankful that he and I had those lovely times together before he moved to Alaska. 
 I've often thought of him, living happily near his beloved grandchildren.   I'm sure he was a wonderfully positive influence on them and their philosophy of life.
  I extend my love and condolences to his family and join those who miss his active presence on earth.
